The audiobook “Kafka on the Shore” and the paper “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.”

Over at Five Branch Tree, Brian is re-reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and comparing it with Kafka On The Shore – the audiobook, which he listened to last summer on a road trip with his wife.

His post further prods me toward listening to that audiobook, which I finally got a hold of last month.  Unfortunately, my commuting time has been cut drastically, leaving me scant quiet time.  We’ll see what happens.  …this reminds me, I haven’t yet set down any words about my reaction to Murakami’s newest work.  That alone should tell you something, but I’ll get to it eventually.

A Hold or Ahold?

A hold is standard English. It is the noun hold with the article a.

Ahold does not exist as a word in standard English.

Incorrect: You’ve really got ahold on me.

Correct: You’ve really got a hold on me.
